School Diets Fall Short on Whole Grains in US

June 2, 2009: 10:04 AM EST
School food-service directors in Minnesota are having difficulty in increasing the amount of whole grain in school food. Research lead by Len Marquart, assistant professor at the University of Minnesota's food science and nutrition department, shows that the directors aren’t always sure if a product meets whole-grain criteria, and find it hard to source suitable products. Most US school children get only one serving of whole grains a day, short of the recommended three. The university is engaged in a series of projects aimed at increasing the amount of whole grains children eat each day.
